Premier EyeCare Associates was the result of a the merger of Sloan EyeCare Center and Brodmerkle Family EyeCare that occurred in 2004. Bruce Brodmerkle opened his practice in 1989 at the current location of 1115 Washington. Dr. Robert Sloan, O.D. opened Sloan EyeCare Center in Chillicothe in 1989 at 407 N. Washington with a second location opening in downtown Brookfield in 1991. Dr. Duane Thompson, O.D. joined Sloan EyeCare Center in 1999, and two years later a new building was built in Brookfield. In 2001, Sloan EyeCare Center added a Trenton location. Together as the new entity, Premier EyeCare Associates, added a fourth location in Carrollton, MO in 2008. Expansion continued in April 2013, when the Brookfield location added additional exam rooms. In 2015, the Trenton location was updated. In 2019 a fifth location was added in Kirksville, MO as Premier Eyecare Associates merged with Dr. W.E. Stock, O.D.
